Review: The Martin Harley Band, The Bodega
The Martin Harley Band serenaded the crowd at the Bodega last night after a strong supporting act from Marc O’Reilly.
MHB struck out with debut Carnival Girl, before enticing the crowd with new material from recent album, Mojo Fix. New song Out Law led to a rip-roaring boogie and the album title track was excellent layered through with Martin’s provocative, whisky-soaked vocals.
Next up was Wrecking Ball which upped the tempo, closely followed by Honey Bee. There were also ballads like Treading Water and Wintercoat, where the crowd were treated to a completely acoustic arrangement, as the band playing stringed instruments and delivered flawless three part harmonies.
Martin was brilliant with his trademark style of playing both acoustic Weissenborn and electric slide guitar across his lap. He was accompanied by double bassist Jay Carter, drummer Pete Swatton with his cheeky snare, hi-hat and brushes... and playing only in his socks. Guitarist Michael Charles added to the ensemble.

There were crowd pleasers like Love in the Afternoon and Nobody’s Fault but Mine, but all too soon the performance came to a close.
